Clearing at Brighton Film School is now open for our higher education programmes starting September 2018… so if you want to kick start your career in film, don’t worry – there’s still time.

Clearing is how unis and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses. For us, that means publicising a list of BFS courses which still have vacancies, and for you it’s an ideal way to find another course if you aren’t totally satisfied with the current options you have in front of you.

This year, Brighton Film School’s Clearing will be available from Thursday 5th July until Monday 10th September 2018. If you already have your exam results, but no offers, you can use Clearing from July. If you’ve had conditional offers, but your exam results didn’t quite go according to plan, you can use Clearing on A Level results day through the UCAS website.
